Here, in an Interview with Rough&Polished, Yaniv Marcus throws light on various nuances concerning 'Investments', with special focus on investment opportunities in diamonds, both whites and fancy coloured ones.
April 5, 2016 - New York, USA, Ramat Gan, Israel, Hong Kong – After decades of unguided and piecemeal diamond investment education, rife with scammers and misleading diamond companies, YAD Global Advisors Ltd. (YAD) Has decided to canonize and organize diamond investment information properly for the general public as well as for the investment community. Under its new subsidiary, the Diamond Investment & Intelligence Center, YAD will be educating the public at large about how and when to invest in diamonds. Common misconceptions that YAD hopes to eliminate include what actually constitutes an investment diamond, who should actually be investing, how much investment diamonds cost, which companies to trust, and when a diamond investment has matured.
“A public source of information like this was sorely lacking in the investment world” said Yaniv Marcus. “So many people have been misled through the years, and there are people out there right now who think that their diamond purchase was an investment. It is a shame but the lack of transparency about diamond pricing in the industry for the general public has meant that many a person has bought into an investment ‘scam’ without knowing it. They own diamonds, but it doesn’t mean that those diamonds are worth more today than the day that they bought them. And do people even know that there are more than the one traditional way to invest? Who was ever planning on telling them? Who can protect them?”
Marcus, plans on finally breaking the barriers to entry for people to allow them to invest their money in diamonds. However, he cautions that not everyone will be able to afford true diamond investments, or will be able to handle a long term investment like these. As a certified investment professional he cautions that these are in the category that he newly termed ‘passion investments’. Meaning that there is an important element of emotions in an investment diamonds that exists in few rational investments in the world, namely just in art, cars, and wines, to name a few.
The Diamond Investment & Intelligence Center can and will help consumers & Investors navigate the options for diamond investments and most importantly steer them away from investment scams. From convincing diamond funds to persuasive local jewelers, consumers will be able to turn to the Diamond Investment & Intelligence Center for their completely objective assessment of their offer at absolutely no cost. The goal is purely education and guidance and to eliminate the fog over the diamond investment world.
